SORT BY Relevancy
"Workers have a right to organize into unions and to bargain collectively with their employers. And a strong, free labor movement is an invigorating and necessary part of our industrial society.Only a fool would try to deprive working men and women of their right to join the union of their choice.Should any political party attempt to abolish Social Security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things, but their number is negligible and they are stupid." President Dwight Eisenhower
Raconteur, poet, journalist, lawyer, soldier, teacher; Albert Pike was a man of many facetes. His work before the Supreme Court argued the treaty rights of American First Nations and faced down racism, genocide and raw political power with a conviction in the word of law and appearance of justice. He was a man of his times. When Dr Albert McKey was desparate for help writing the ritual for Scottish Rite, he turned to Col Pike, whose work has been tough for readers to digest because it requires exceptional dissection.
If you have been thus disappointed, our labour has been in vain
Whether these degrees have for you a real value depends upon your capacity to understand them
And upon the amount of study and the degree of reflection you have bestowed upon them
He brings a call for those committed to preserving the landmarks, who have embraced as their own the attitudes of the Antient Charges. No one can be compelled to change, yet as Pike reminds us, we take to the grave what we have learned. If we do not share that learning, it is then lost. We should be aware that the deeper lessons, the knowledge of freemasonry is at risk if we who are starving for knowledge do not willingly commit to our apprenticeship. No barrier is enough to make us fail. But move forward we will with respect as Antients sharing the feast.
Remember when the Canada/US Free Trade Agreement came along? It was all over the media, politicians of the day gave extensive time and effort to explain how they saw it to Canadians. It was the core issue of a Federal election. The majority Government victory for Brian Mulroney paved the passing of the pact. Then it became NAFTA with the inclusion of Mexico. Most of us can certainly remember some of the issues from that time, and they still go on.
Those days of relative "transparency" are long gone. The Corporate Pacification Committee (CPC) of Emperor Harper doesn't believe in telling Canadians what all these "trade" deals really mean. Canada/China FIPA. TPP. And now, CETA, Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement. With the 28 member European Union. Despite the warm fuzzies from Emperor about this being a "done deal", it is nowhere near that. The Agreement text is out there, whether it was meant to be or not. And it's not that "upside" for Canada.
Scott Harris is the Trade Campaigner with the Council of Canadians, Canada’s largest citizens’ organization. He has been active for over a decade in the anti-globalization movement, organizing around the MAI in the late-90s, the WTO ministerial in Seattle in 1999, the FTAA meetings in Quebec City in 2001, the Kananaskis meeting of the G8 in 2002 and the G20 Summit in Toronto. Prior to his position as trade campaigner, Scott was the Council of Canadians’ Prairies-NWT Regional Organizer, and he has also worked in the labour movement with the Alberta Federation of Labour and the Alberta Workers Health Centre and in international solidarity through the Alberta Council for Global Cooperation. He has had the distinct pleasure of being tear gassed by security forces in three different countries.
I will be joined by Scott and we will examine this deal in detail. There is much that Canadians need to know about it.

Elected MP for Glasgow Hillhead in 1987. Expelled from the Labour Party in 2003 over his stance on Iraq, and the following year co-founded the Respect Party. Won Bethnal Green in 2005 election, but at the 2010 election lost out in Poplar and Limehouse. This week he won Bradford West. Galloway opposed the 1991 gulf war and was critical of the effect that the subsequint santions had on the people of Iraq. In a 28 March 2003 interview that Tony Blair and George W. Bush had "lied to the British Air Force and Navy, when they said the battle of Iraq would be very quick and easy. They attacked Iraq like wolves. ..." and added, "... the best thing British troops can do is to refuse to obey illegal orders. This incitement was later among the formal reasons for his expulsion from the Labour Party. He called the Labour Government "Tony Blair's lie machine
In May 2005, a US Senate committee report accused Galloway along with former French minister Charles Pasqua of receiving the right to buy oil under the UN's oil-for-food scheme. On arriving in the US, he told Reuters, "I have no expectation of justice from a group of Christian fundamentalist and Zionist activists." Galloway described Coleman as a "pro-war, neocon hawk and the lickspittle of George W. Bush," who, he said, sought vengeance against anyone who did not support the war in Iraq.
The I. H. Elders will be speaking about the serious times that concern all of us. Matthew/MattithYah 11:28-30 - (28) “Come to Me, all you who labour and are burdened, and I shall give you rest. (29) “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am meek and humble in heart, and you shall find rest for your beings. (30) “For My yoke is gentle and My burden is light.”
Tonight I am having a conversation with Hassan Perez a Teacher who is single and based in Miami, Florida.
Hassan is a Cuban, Muslim, he shared the following thoughts with me….
As per the theme we are going to discuss and explore I want to share with you Ebony some of my comments from a discussion a Muslim sister initiated with her connections on the book of faces today. She asked folks what their thoughts are on friendship as a key building block for marriage and the following is what I offered:
Many cases boil down to - here's that important concept again - INTENTION. Are you entering into a relationship to have someone to wait on you and serve you? Are you pursuing someone for sex? Or are you looking for a companion that you can share lives with, the tears and giggles, the labour and leisure, the highs and lows, the joy and pain, the warm sunlight and the pouring rain, the good and bad, the hopes and fears, the hopes and regrets as well as the innermost secrets? Those seeking to find and be in an intimate and blessed relationship with the best of friends work towards the latter and, subsequently, are not caught up in the former.
My questions are… Why do things sometimes get all weird when we change a friendship into a relationship? What’s your experience when dating friends? Do friends turn into great lovers, husbands or wives?
